Did you know you never have to be sick? The illness or disease you now have was never meant to be part of your life. Your family does not determine your fate by passing a gene to you to have heart trouble or cancer.
In the garden of Eden there was no sickness or disease. Even after Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden fruit it was almost 900 years before they died. It is my contention they lived long full lives all the way to the end.
So why are so many people sick? Unbelief could be used as a reason but I think the belief that everyone gets sick and it’s only natural for us to get colds and flu and major diseases.
You can have what you believe most and people really believe in sickness. At 58 years old it seems that everyone around my age is pointing out their diseases as if they were awards to be admired.
It does not have to be so. When Jesus went to the cross for us he not only took away our sins he gave us the power to be healthy and live long, full, prosperous lives, Isaiah 53:5 says ” But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
With His stripes we are healed– that means just what it says. Just before Jesus was sent to the cross the Romans tied Jesus to the post and whipped Him with 39 lashes which are called stripes in the Bible. By these stripes we are healed.
First Peter 1:24 makes it a little more personal. “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”
By whose stripes ye were healed. Ye is old English for you. By whose stripes YOU were healed. But it is not automatic as I’m sure you can see all around you.
You can use the warming rays of the sun to help keep you healthy and also to provide electricity for your home. I have read the earth4energy review and think it may be something of interest to many people.
America is still and will always be the greatest nation on earth-well maybe with the exception of Israel. Just as God blessed the nation of Israel He has blessed the our nation.
The country was founded on the idea that God is supreme and we should give honor to Him in all we do. The people who left England under extreme religious persecution were rewarded by landing on and creating a strong nation that has existed longer in its original format than any other nation.
When you see the wealth that is on display in America give credit where credit is due. It is all because some brave and hardy souls believed in the existence of the Almighty God Jehovah and was willing to dedicate this country to him.
Even when you look at the poor sections of our society you can still give praise to the King of Kings. The poor in our country would be considered well off in a majority of the countries around the world.
The great thing about our country is you can be poor today with what many would see as no hope and can work yourself out of the mire and rise to the level you want to achieve. Someone once said that being poor is only a temporary situation.
many people have been credited with the saying ” I’ve been rich and I have been poor. Rich is better.” The amazing thing about God is He wants you to be rich,
God does not want to keep you from prospering to keep you humble nor is He out to teach you a lesson by making you poor. Being poor is a choice. Circumstance may have put you there (and circumstance is not one of Gods’ names) but your decisions bring you out or keep you held in that unnecessary bondage.
God said in His word I wish above all else that you prosper and be in health (3 John 1:2) You can claim both!
I think part of being wealthy is the ability to be free from people who can control you. The electric and power companies want you to be dependent on them. It is not necessary though since God has created enough energy to light every house, building, and street light everywhere in the world. I was looking at the earh4energy review and am encouraged by the information that talks about building your own mini power plant to provide the energy your house needs.
